Taste Testing Tuesdays (12)

Good morning (or whatever time it is where you are), everyone!
Welcome to another installment of Taste Testing Tuesdays!
Taste Testing Tuesdays was inspired by 'Teaser Tuesdays', a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading

On the menu this week is a quick sample from the book I've been devouring's a bit crass at times, but the story is VERY interesting...and right now the suspense is killing me (equates to must finish book very soon)!  Let's take a taste, shall we?

Dropped away from the ferry and swam toward shore until he was close enough to the sandy bottom to use it, clawing along until he'd gone far enough to raise his head from the water and risk a glance back.  He'd covered a few hundred yards and he could see the guards forming a ring around the dock. -- pg 312, Shutter Island by Dennie Lehane


Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

*Grab your current read

*Open to a random page

*Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

*Share the title & author, too, so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


Until next time....happy reading!

You are both right! Managed to sneak a little more reading in last night/this morning...I think I may get to finish it at lunch. Do NOT like leaving a book during a cliffhanger! =0)
